This restaurant will give you a fine dining experience, but it’s not exceptional for the price tag. The staff greeting us at the door was super friendly, but our waitress was not. It seemed like we were judged the entire time because we didn’t look like millionaires. Nonetheless, we still left her a standard % tip even though she seemed to rush us out the door. Needless to say, we will not be visiting this restaurant again.

We are very picky about our steaks and III Forks did not disappoint. Steaks were perfectly seasoned and the meat was high quality. Our server was attentive and the food and drinks came quickly. We will be back!

My boyfriend and I came here to celebrate my birthday and it was absolutely amazing. Our waitress was very helpful and attentive. The food was to die for - especially the king's butter with the steak. I highly recommend going to this restaurant for any special celebration. We were seated towards the back of the restaurant in a private area with a couple of tables. It was quiet, and the atmosphere was calming and romantic.

From Eric, our maître d’ to David, our waiter - nothing was missed (start to finish). Excellent recommendations, checked in with us just enough & David’s professionalism was indicative of experience & expertise that is required for establishments such as this. We’ll dine again whenever we are in the Austin area.

LOVED the food and service. Second to none. It was not a quiet place, which I wouldn't have minded had not the table for two where I sat was so big. A smaller table so I could carry on a normal conversation with my date would have produced all 5 stars here. Please shrink the tables!

Such an amazing experience. Pedro was absolutely amazing - very knowledgeable, great personality and prompt. Pedro and the entire staff made us feel very special; they even put us in a private room. The food was SO GOOD… same with wine and cocktails! Go here if you want to be pampered and eat like kings!

We haven’t gone out to a “fancy” dinner here in Austin in a long time, and I heard a lot of good things about Three Forks from my co-workers. We were not disappointed at all with the experience. The food was delicious, from the chicken-fried lobster to the red fish special over risotto that I had to my wife’s filet mignon. We finished the evening with a yummy bread pudding and I had a nice Tawny port. I’m looking forward to going back and trying the Wagyu. If you’re looking for something that feels special, either for a date, or a celebration, give Three Forks a try.

My wife and I visited last night to celebrate our 27th wedding anniversary. It was our first experience at III Forks. I must say that the service and the food exceeded our expectations. The staff was attentive and knowledgeable about the entire menu. The food was prepared and presented with utmost care and cooked to perfection. An additional treat was when the manager stopped by to talk with us for a moment. He was genuine and easy to talk to. We mentioned our anniversary to him during our chat and to our surprise we were served a special dessert tray that was over the top excellent. The manager, our waiter, and the kitchen staff deserve a raise! The overall experience was one of the best I have ever had at any restaurant. I will definitely return with friends and family!

We research this and it looks like an amazing place but we were so disappointed. It was a beautiful restaurant but the food was just so so. When you spend $400 on four people you expect to walk away bragging about the food and I’ve literally had better food at Texas roadhouse. Definitely not memorable definitely not outstanding. And the service was pretty blah as well.

My husband and I went for our anniversary and everything was amazing. Don, our server, was spectacular and super friendly. The only con was that it felt a little rushed but the food was delicious from appetizers to dessert! Also, the spiced maple Manhattan was one of the best cocktails I’ve ever had!
